Happy St Piran's Day
Wishing all our Cornish readers a happy St Piran's Day. I was reminded of the day whilst listening to a radio programme. I thought it might be a bit late, but then not all Cornishmen live in Cornwall. We should be pulling in the Cornish New Yorkers soon.
All together in the Floral Dance...
The clip above is of the Helston Furry Dance, captured by our chums at British Pathé in 1955. This ancient Cornish tradition is still fighting on. (Pathé has a clip from the 1933 dance too.)
